Up to date Ebay statistical results
« on: June 08, 2013, 09:48:07 PM »
This info is as current as you can get:  With my tongue tucked firmly in my cheek, I just counted all ebay postings for sale, which have the following in their description:

(Fits 69 Camaro Z28)

after performing ultra precise calculation, it's determined that 92.68% of all ebay postings will *fit* your 69 Z28....  :)

EBay changed search a while back. You have to go to advanced search and use exact words any order instead of all words any order. Narrows it down alot.

Type -fits after whatever you are searching for and that will eliminate them.

It seems like no matter what you type in the search field there are always those dern metal signs. They don't fit my 69 Z28.

Type the word 'FITS' after whatever you are searching for? Give a good example MO.

I find if I just type say 1969Camaro instead of 1969 Camaro I get a lot less 'bid and buy it now' same with 1969Z28. Most of the time when I type in 1969Z28 there is usually under 70 auctions. 1969 Camaro, just under 75,000. 1969Camaro, anywhere from 4,000 to 8,000 if you type in 69 or 1969. One thing though, you will always see those dern metal signs. I hate weeding through all that crap.

No, not "fits", you want "-fits" (note the - sign).

Try this...   1969 camaro -fits

As John said, you must put the minus sign in front of the word fits. It works with any item you search.

Got it. I think i was using spaces or wording it different somehow. I always came up with '0' auctions. Just tried 1969 Camaro -fits and works nice. Now no more garbage to sift thru. Much more refind. Thanks.
